  • Monday 19 Sept 2016 10:00am to 12:00pm at *B BL Mtg Room lb3.323 *VMP BL 8 39395

The purpose of this event is for each course to consider in which units, Portfolio Thinking is to be implemented.  An integrated approach that scaffolds the development of students’ Reflective Thinking and Writing skills as well as Portfolio skills is required so that students gain the most benefit from this assessment activity.  By the end of this session, you will

  • Have a clearer understanding of Portfolio activity and  it’s benefits

  • Please consider bringing any course map material you may have that also includes topics that are covered in the units, ULOs and assessment items. 
  • Bring your laptop as this is a hands on interactive session

 

Designing Capstone Experience 

In this interactive session, participants will work in pairs to review and revise design of their capstone units.

Facilitated by Harsh Suri (LIG)

  • Wednesday 7 Sept 2016 11:00am to 12:00pm at *B BL Mtg Room lb3.201 *VMP BL 8 39395

Capstone experiences support effective transition to workplace or further studies by providing opportunities to consolidate and apply theoretical and practical knowledge and skills to authentic learning and assessment activities. They support students in developing a professional identity and building confidence in their capacity to contribute as a responsible global citizen. Within our Faculty, capstone experiences are often provided through one or more capstone subjects, WIL units and study tours.

Capstone subjects are typically taken by students in the last trimester of their study. Rather than teaching new discipline specific knowledge and skills, capstone subjects focus on building generic skills and capabilities in integrating, applying and reflecting on the knowledge, skills and capabilities students have developed throughout their course. They support development of professional identity and confidence in ability to undertake complex tasks typically undertaken within the workplace, as well as assisting students to transition from their current position into professionals within their selected industry. Interactive classroom based activities can include problem based learning, case study analyses, simulations and immersion experiences and student presentations.

Intended audience: Course Directors and Capstone Unit Chairs

Materials required: Capstone unit guides

 

Internationalisation of Curriculum

In this interactive session, participants will contextualise these learning outcomes within their own disciplines, units and courses. Also discussed will be practical examples from various disciplines for developing and assessing these learning outcomes.

Facilitated by Harsh Suri (LIG)

  • Thursday 8 Sept 2016 11:00am to 12:00pm at *B BL Mtg Room lb5.201 *VMP BL 3 39324

Internationalisation of Curriculum in our faculty is aimed at developing knowledge, skills and attributes that will enable our graduates to live, work and contribute meaningfully to a globally interconnected world. In practical terms, this involves reviewing and revising our curriculum to support scaffolded development of the following three learning outcomes across each course: Global perspectives; intercultural competence; and Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility

Global perspectives offer students an opportunity to critically engage with multiple viewpoints from different cultures, nations and disciplines.

Intercultural competence is aimed at developing students’ ability to communicate effectively and appropriately across diverse cultural contexts.

Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) focuses on development along moral and ethical dimensions by engaging students with issues on ethical professional behaviour, social justice and sustainability.

Intended audience: All staff involved in teaching and learning

 

Teaching Strategies and Practices

Deakin_Dandenong-seminar

 

Team learning within large units: Wishful thinking or not? Worth the effort? For who?

  • Friday 5 Aug 2016 1:00pm to 2:30pm at *B BL Mtg Room lb3.323 LB Level 3; *F BL Mtg Room ad3.310 (All Deakin Staff) AD Level 3; *VMP BL 2 39323

*Special Guest Speaker: Associate Professor Patricia Everaet, Ghent University

Session: Team learning has gained a renewed emphasis in higher education research over the last decade. Being able to work in teams is formally recognized as a desirable attribute of university Accounting students. Moreover, team learning is an effective way to improve students’ performance and consequently student learning success.  However, team learning in large groups can often be difficult to accomplish.

This session will describe how we have implemented team learning in Accounting in the first undergraduate year, over the past 8 years.  The results of the Doctoral research of Dr. Evelien Opdecam will be discussed (Ghent University).  Part of that research has been published in Issues in Accounting Education (Opdecam & Everaert, 2012, Improving student satisfaction in a first year undergraduate accounting course by team learning, Volume 27, no. 1, 55-82) and in Research in Higher Education (Opdecam, Everaert, et al., 2014, The effect of team learning on student profile and student performance in accounting education, Vol 55 no. 4, pp. 400-432).

Team Learning provides students with unique learning opportunities and lecture-based learning for the tutorials in the advanced Financial Accounting class. In the team learning tutorials, students can discuss the assignment in instructor-selected and stable groups of five members during tutorial class time. The instructor’s role is to monitor the functioning of the teams and to provide feedback when necessary. Contrary, in the lecture-based tutorials, the instructor fully explains the solutions of the assignment and the students remain passive recipients of the learning material.

The workshop will explore the following areas:

·         How can team learning be set up in a large unit? Guidelines, instructional material, time schedules and dos/don’ts are provided.

·         What is the role of the teacher in the team-learning sessions?

·         Is team-learning beneficial for the academic achievement of the student, even if no homework or group project is required?

·         Which type of students prefer to learn in small teams?

·         What about the satisfaction of the students in the team learning, and in the lecture-based session?

·         Has group composition impacted on individual performance and what is the best way to compose the groups of the teams?

Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE) – DVCE, Deakin University Seminar Series

Dr Ernesto Panadero, Visiting Honorary Professor

“Rubrics: are they evil? Empirical-based reflections” 

Rubrics are one of the hottest topics in educational assessment. Even though the bulk of evidence around their potential effect for students’ learning has grown steadily, so has the “behind the curtains” critique about their use and implementation, with only a few exceptions of good-quality-research-based critiques. What are the known effects of rubrics? What is positive about them –if anything? What are their flaws? What are the main missuses? And finally, are they as evil as some people depicts them? These and other philosophical questions (teaching/learning related) might get some answer at this seminar.

Dr Ernesto Panadero

Dr Panadero was appointed as an Honorary Professor at Deakin University in January 2016. During his academic visitation with CRADLE during September and October 2016, Dr Ernesto Panadero has been working with REDI and CRADLE staff on collaborative projects; has given a given seminar at Burwood, as well as preparing for the CRADLE International Symposium in October.

Ernesto is an outstanding researcher who is funded at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid by the Ramón y Cajal excellence program for research. This is a national program more competitive than an ARC DECRA. He has an excellent publication record in top quality journals in English.

He is the convenor of the Special Interest Group 1 of the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction, which is the major research association for assessment internationally. His research interests are Assessment (Classroom assessment, formative assessment, assessment for learning), Self-assessment (Cognitive, motivational and emotional aspects), Peer assessment (Accuracy and interpersonal variables), Self-regulated learning and Socially shared regulated learning (Collaborative learning and CSCL).

More information on Dr Panadero can be found here: http://www.ernestopanadero.es/

Places are limited so register early!
